Last summer I was busy translating my first book ever (I’ll admit it was a bit scary… but so exciting!), the famous “The little black dress” by Simon Henry. And now the french version I worked on is finally released: I received 2 copies from the editor this morning and am glad to offer one […]

Booh, tryed to order some yarn from Phildar (quite exceptional for me, but my grandmother asked I crochet a blanket for her) online today, and it took forever. At 7am !! I tried yesterday but it wouldn’t even let me log in. Can’t they get a decent server ? :-/ It seems there’s no Phildar […]

On japanese knitting (and crochet) books

Posted: Wednesday, June 10th, 2009 @ 3:30 pm in book review, Knitting | 1 Comment »

Like many before, I have succumbed. I bought several japanese craft books on Etsy (very easy, and some nice sellers will get you any book you ask for).
